During the development of a survey: Specifying the design of a survey, selecting suitable diagnostic tools and instruments, developing instruments and questionnaires, planning sample sizes, designing an evaluation plan etc.

During the data analysis: Data management, generating data sets, power analysis, analyzing data with descriptive and inferential statistical methods (reliability estimations, variance analysis, regression analysis, structural equation models, multilevel analysis, support in using statistics software (R, SPSS, MPlus).

Consulting Service on Final Theses

Should be transparent for the academic advisor in order to prevent unequal treatment as well as misunderstanding. Therefore, consulting service on final papers/theses can only be offered when the academic advisor is informed (see below).
